Little Pink Houses of Hope offers a retreat for cancer patients and their families

BEAUFORT, NC (WITN) – An organization that helps cancer patients enjoy life and forget about their diagnosis for a while has been working hard to make it happen in East Carolina.

The Little Pink Houses of Hope held their 10th annual retreat on Thursday.

For many of the special event attendees, life has been tough for months, but sometimes a trip to the coast can be just what the doctor ordered.

One event attendee said the whole week was the best bonding experience for them and their whole family after two tough years.

Even through the pain and hardship that cancer brings, Little Pink Houses of Hope is on a mission to break down barriers and provide a loving and supportive environment.

Coordinator Dawn Walker says they offer breast cancer patients and their families a holiday retreat.

“It’s just a time for them to get away from their cancer, away from their routine, away from their doctor’s appointments and everything that comes with cancer,” Walker says.

The retreat includes many activities and experiences allowing breast cancer patients to bond with their own family and other families facing similar challenges.

From activities on the beach, cruises on calm waters, and every meal catered for, Little Pink Houses of Hope is focused on supporting every patient and family going through retirement.

For many, the 10th annual retreat is the highlight of their year as they make friends that will last a lifetime.
